CCTV, Closed-Circuit Television, is a video surveillance system that uses cameras to monitor and record activities in a specific area. It is commonly used for security and surveillance purposes in various settings. The cameras transmit video footage to a limited number of monitors or recording devices, allowing for monitoring and evidence gathering.
FDAS stands for Fire Detection and Alarm System. It is a system designed to detect the presence of fire or smoke within a building or facility and alert occupants and emergency responders to the potential danger. The system typically consists of smoke detectors, heat detectors, manual pull stations, and alarm notification devices such as horns, strobes, or sirens. When a fire or smoke is detected, the system activates the alarms and initiates emergency response protocols to ensure the safety of people and property.
MPLS stands for Multi-Protocol Label Switching. It is a network protocol that allows for efficient and fast data packet forwarding in telecommunications networks. MPLS works by adding a label to each data packet, which helps routers make forwarding decisions quickly and efficiently. This technology is commonly used in wide area networks (WANs) and service provider networks to improve network performance, prioritize traffic, and enable virtual private networks (VPNs).
Access Control System
Access Control System is a security measure that regulates and manages entry to physical spaces or information systems, ensuring that only authorized individuals can gain access while restricting unauthorized entry.
Building Management System
A Building Management System (BMS) refers to a computer-based control system that is designed to monitor, manage, and optimize various building operations and functions. It typically includes hardware and software components that enable the automation and integration of systems such as HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning), lighting, security, fire safety, and other building systems. The primary goal of a BMS is to enhance the efficiency, comfort, and safety of a building while reducing energy consumption and operating costs.
Distributed Antenna System
A Distributed Antenna System (DAS) is a network of interconnected antennas strategically placed throughout a building or an area to improve wireless communication coverage and capacity. It enhances the signal strength and quality by distributing the wireless signals more efficiently, overcoming obstacles and interference that can occur in large or densely populated areas. DAS is commonly used in environments such as stadiums, airports, office buildings, and campuses to ensure reliable and consistent wireless connectivity for users.
Structured cabling refers to the standardized and organized system of cabling infrastructure within a building or facility. It involves the design, installation, and management of a network’s physical infrastructure, including cables, connectors, and related hardware. The purpose of structured cabling is to provide a reliable and flexible network infrastructure that supports various communication technologies and devices, such as computers, telephones, and data storage systems. It allows for easier management, scalability, and efficient transmission of data, voice, and video signals throughout the building.
A command center is a centralized location where strategic decisions and operations are coordinated and monitored. It serves as a control hub, providing real-time information and facilitating effective communication among key personnel, enabling them to respond promptly and efficiently to various situations.
Public Address System
A Public Address System (PAS) refers to a system of electronic equipment used to amplify and distribute sound in public spaces or large venues. It typically consists of microphones, amplifiers, speakers, and related equipment. The primary purpose of a Public Address System is to enable clear and audible communication to a large audience, such as during public speeches, announcements, or performances.
A video wall refers to a large display consisting of multiple screens or monitors that are arranged together to form a single, unified display surface. It allows for the simultaneous presentation of visual content or information across a large area, creating an immersive and impactful viewing experience. Video walls are commonly used in various settings such as control rooms, advertising displays, entertainment venues, and corporate environments to showcase dynamic and engaging multimedia content.
